USA Boxing Olympic Hopeful Darius Fulghum Chosen to Be Giving Games 2020 Athlete Ambassador

The PVAMU Nursing alumnus will represent USA Boxing in the national fundraising campaign

Darius Fulghum, a spring 2019 graduate of Prairie View A&M University’s College of Nursing, is a boxer on a new mission. The registered nurse-turned boxer has been chosen to represent USA Boxing athletes as a Giving Games 2020 Ambassador.

Giving Games is a national fundraising initiative to help Team USA athletes sustain financially during their ongoing training. When the coronavirus pandemic caused the postponement of the 2020 Olympics, this created a financial burden for athletes. So, Fulghum will use the new platform to raise funds for USA Boxing.

“It’s an honor to be a Giving Games Athlete Ambassador because I am passionate about this initiative,” said Fulghum, a USA Boxing Heavyweight Olympic Qualification Team Member. “To be able to help raise money to give back to a cause that can help so many people is rewarding. I am privileged to have the opportunity to do so.”

Fulghum made his debut as a Giving Games Ambassador during Good Morning America’s 3rd Hour on Thursday, July 23, 2020.
